As many of you know, I’ve made lots of big life decisions to move forward with my progress and my life over the past few years. Once I made these decisions, I found every time that listening to my intuition was the right way to go.
Listening to our inner voices, no matter what feedback we get from others, is so important when making life-changing decisions. This week I want to talk about how to stay in your own truth, even as you hear feedback and seek guidance from others.
Sometimes in life, when we are making big life decisions, we automatically want to speak with our closest friends and family. Many times speaking with those closest to us can help us to see the choices in front of us more clearly and make a better informed, more educated decision. There is nothing wrong with this at all, but keep in mind that it’s very important to stay in your truth.
You have to remember that everyone is on a different life journey. We all have different visions, goals and, most importantly, have different limiting beliefs and fears. Sharing information with others and getting feedback can be very helpful, but you don’t want anyone to override what your inner voice is telling you, where your soul is guiding you. I truly believe that there are no mistakes in life, as long as you follow your intuition. Sometimes the road we are led down may be challenging, but everything happens for a reason.
Like many things, staying in your truth during a difficult decision is easier said than done. Being true to yourself when others may have differing opinions takes a lot of strength, courage and faith, and you have all of these! You will find, that when you make decisions with your intuition and true inner voice guiding you, making these choices and really stepping into your truth is transformational and very empowering! Try these steps to help you stay true to your guiding soul.
1. Silent reflection. Our lives can be so loud and rushed, that we don’t often get quiet time to ourselves. Before making a big decision, sit in silence for 15 minutes each day. Ask a question at the start of your reflection, and then allow your intuition to speak to you loud and clear. Trust yourself. Listen, trust and act on your intuition.
2. Journal about your silent reflections. No matter how clear messages may be when you listen intently to your intuition, it is easy to forget what comes up during silent reflection. So write it down! Get clear messages, listen and record them for future reference, then trust and act on your guidance.
3. Do your research. Again, it’s ok to seek guidance. Speak to one or two people if you feel you need to, to run any questions or ideas by them. Just be sure to ‘feel’ out what you are reading and hearing. I emphasise the word feel because everything must feel right for YOU.
4. Believe in yourself. This step is the most important. All of the work that you put into making the right decision for yourself will mean nothing if you forget that you do have all the answers. Trust in your ability to make the right choice.
Remember there are no mistakes in life, only beautiful lessons that can sometimes be challenging, but always happen for a reason. If you are facing a life-changing decision, and even if you are not, stop and take time to listen to yourself, your inner voice, and remember to stay true to that guidance. I would love to hear if you’ve made a change lately and listened your intuition. How did it turn out?
Wishing you a beautiful day!
